    "They are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me -- fails."

    Is that all she has... the race card???!!!

    No sweetcheeks, it's a bad idea. We don't care if comes from the green dude named The Great Gazoo. And sweetheart, even if it does go in, we don't want it RUSHED in a couple weeks. If one doesn't like nationalized healthcare, you are a racist ... got it.

    I know there are some redneck racists and blah blah blah, but libtards, your own constituents are just as bad. Calling out racism for the sake of it, is just as bad as being a racist. In fact, the original definition of racism is thinking/acting/judging with prejudicial regard to race.


    And politicians calling out a media member (regardless of affiliation) is a sign of patheticsm. They should be above it, and that includes Republican McCotter calling out Olbermann, and this bimbo calling out Limbaugh.

    You had it right when you said,"In fact, the original definition of racism is thinking/acting/judging with prejudicial regard to race. "....is that not what's happening? Watch a video of a "town hall" from down South and get back to me.

    Since the OP all of a sudden has a "concern" for racial injustice, why doesn't the he make a full list of "racist" statements made by both parties? Or, is this newest blustering of phony outrage just another disguised attack on "liberals"... as with the other 4 threads he's started over the last 24 hours?

    I'm not going to hold my breath here for an answer. Asking the OP to address the issue of racism is like asking Heidi Fleiss to speak about the sanctity of marriage.

    Yikes... really? And even if so, a few bad apples paints the picture for the rest of us that realize this is an idiotic idea/way-about-it?

    the opposition to the Obama health plan is national, and growing -- has nothing to do with race

    racism as a charge is the left's equivalent to the charge of "commie" from the McCarthy era -- simply a way to foreclose and extinguish any debate, exposing the left's inability to pose an ethical or rational response

    EH? "Obamacare"?? Not healthcare reform?

    LOL (Propaganda 101).

    Andrew Breitbart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "Andrew Breitbart (born February 1, 1969) is an American conservative commentator for the Washington Times... He frequently appears as a guest panelist on Fox News's late night program, Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld. In the hours immediately following Senator Ted Kennedy's death, Breitbart called Kennedy a “villain,” a “duplicitous bastard,” a “prick” and a "pile of human excrement".

    Don't EVEN start the bullshit.

    Sure... it may not be an issue of race for SOME people. But you have to be very ignorant to ignore those who are making it just that. And while you sit here and try to make it seem as if this is some kind of "lib" fallacy, I'll tell that to the black woman who was kicked out of a Town Hall Meeting after someone came over and ripped her poster of Rosa Parks. Or to the official who had a swastika painted on their road sign. Or maybe, the person who e-mailed the picture of Obama dressed up as a Witch Doctor or characterized as an assassinated primate... nah, that was just "creative art", wasn't it? Or how about the one who drew the White House lawn with a field full of Watermelons? Perhaps this artist wanted to visualize what Michele Obama's Victory Garden could look like?

    Or maybe you can hide behind the First Amendment when political pundits like Limbaugh and Beck say that our President is a racist and hates white people? I guess that was misinterpeted by everyone and it was supposed to be an emotional cry for everyone to come together and sing Kum Ba Yah at the next Tea Bagging Party, right? Or how about parents that have their own kids holding up signs outside of Town Hall Meetings saying that Obama is a monkey... just a cute drawing from Art class? Perhaps you can try to think about another bullshit cop-out while you're still having a scavenger hunt for Obama's Kenyan Birth Certificate, listening to the remixes to "Barack The Magic Negro" on your iPod on indefinite repeat? Yeah... just TRY to act as if some people aren't making the issue surrounding Health Care about race. Even YOU can't be that fuckin' stupid.

    What a perfect way to shut down any dissent in your population.

    IMO, It's about corporate money, and they're using the race card to divide people up, to get mad and fearful.

    It's about govt control and using the race card to accomplish what 8 ears of neo-cons failed to do.

    It is now also uncool and racist to question your government.

    Bullshit...
    Perhaps you should learn how to make a critique about Obama that doesn't feed into the racial rhetoric? I have... I'm not completely satisfied with him... his lack of aggression on Civil Rights for gays & lesbians strikes a nerve with me, as well as his inability to move on to a different plan when his first idea doesn't work out. Such as his battle cries for bipartisanship with the Health Care Debate.

    But notice, these complaints came without resorting to the usual name calling, the hope of failure, or all of the pseudo-clever comments and insults that tap into race? I can make my critiques without calling him a Socialist/Communist/Nazi/Anti-White Kenyan with no birth certificate. What's YOUR excuse?

    Astonishing considering the man is just as white as he is black. Half of him has, "a score to settle?" What is the other half going to do? Grouse about it with the boys at the country club while sipping gin and tonics?

    Obama's not even a descendant of slaves!

    Oh wait... we're judging his agenda by the color of his skin, not his ancestry, genetic composition, history, or philosophy. Yeah, that works. :rolleyes:

    I am sick of tired of Nancy Pelosi and B. Hussein Obama and all of these other 'Tax and Spend' democrats robbing me blind with tax increases to give the welfare queens and other dirtbag members of society benefits that they do not deserve.

    If a person has worked, and has become unemployed, the govt should step in with UNEMPLOYMENT to help the person, for a defined period of time, until they find work.

    If someone has never worked (welfare queens) (in some cases for generations of the same family), they are not entitled to SQUAT. This country was founded on the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Nowhere in the constitution does it guarantee free healthcare, free shelter, or free foodstamps.

    People are undoubtedly going to call me a racist for this, and by doing so, they prove what we all know to be true. I have mentioned nothing about race in my 'rant,' yet all parties, including the liberal guilt crowd, know what group tends to 1.) contribute the least and 2.) take the most. What are the prison racial population statistics again? I know whites get blamed for that two, and frankly I am sick and tired of tiptoeing around the issue. We have been giving reparations for the last fifty years, especially when people on welfare in most states make more money than someone who works a full time job at McDonald's. It disgusts me that we are being taxed into oblivion to provide for these people. I worked hard for my education, I paid a LOT of tuition, and now I have a good job. Why should my hard work and investment benefit some asshole who sits around all month waiting for the government check to show up? You are right, it shouldn't.

    I still find it funny that Barack Obama is the leader of a political party that fought against freeing the slaves.



    CUT WELFARE - CUT THE DEFICIT - CUT TAXES

    Include that quote "nothing I have said is racist" to the questioning board. I've seen a handful of people on this board who could not see their anger and their racism go hand in hand in the facts they try to communicate.

    It's not necessarily racism, and while it is anyone's right to disagree with whatever, know what the hell you're talking about first. This whole thing has been an avalanche of propaganda and misinformation from the first whisper of it.

    I've actually read the proposals, as well as listened to the President and for the life of me can't see where the opposition is rooted.

    Mao Tse Tung said "power conceeds nothing without power" and how right he was. The healthcare industry has been fleecing us all for decades and are not about to give up the goose that laid the golden egg without a fight.
